Overview

Exchange Rate Economics: Theories and Evidence is the second edition of Floating Exchange Rates: Theories and Evidence and builds on the successful content and structure of the previous edition. It has been comprehensively updated and expanded to include additional literature on the determination of both fixed and floating exchange rates.

Core topics covered include:

  • the purchasing power parity hypotheses and the PPP puzzle
  • the monetary and portfolio-balance approaches to exchange rates
  • new open economy macroeconomics approach to exchange rates
  • the determination of exchange rates in target zone models and speculative attack models.

Exchange Rate Economics: Theories and Evidence also includes extensive discussion of recent econometric work on exchange rates with a particular focus on equilibrium exchange rates and measuring exchange rate misalignment, as well as discussion on the non-fundamentals-based approaches to exchange rate behaviour, such as the market microstructure approach.

The book will appeal to academics and postgraduate students with an interest in all aspects of international finance and will also be of interest to practitioners interested in issues of equilibrium exchange rates and the forecastability of currencies in terms of macroeconomic fundamentals.
